Before installing the ozonator, it is important that the pool is as clean as possible. A clean pool will help optimize the performance. The filter will need to be cleaned or backwashed one day before starting the generator. Superchlorinate the pool with calcium hypochlorite or dichlor. Adjust the pH between 7.4-7.6 and alkalinity between 80-120 ppm. Run pool continously for 24 hours prior to starting the ozonator.
Locate an area on the wall near the equipment. The generator should be mounted in a clean, protected area, either indoors or outdoors (preferably out of the direct sunlight). Locate generator out of reach of the sprinklers or drainage spouts. The Del Ozone generator should be installed at least one foot above the maximum water level.
Your next step is to wire the power cord from the Del Eclipse Ozonator to the pool timer. When wiring, be sure to follow local and NEC/CEC electrical codes. CONTACT A PROFESSIONAL ELECTRICTIAN IF YOU ARE UNCOMFORTABLE WORKING WITH POWER. Incorrect wiring can cause dangerous shocks and may void your warranty.
Connect the Del Eclipse to the pool timing clock so that the Eclipse operates simultaneously with the pool pump. 220 volt models, which is the model being installed, will come with wire leads. The 110 volt models will come with a standard 3 prong plug. Caution - Not all timers are wired the same. This one has the loads (outputs) on terminals 2 and 4. Some have the loads on 3 and 4. Make sure you understand the layout before you connect the wires.
Ground the Del Eclipse. Using an 8AWG conductor, connect the grounding lug on the right side of the Del Eclipse to an appropriate earth contact. Failure to adequately bond your power unit can lead to severe electrical shocks. Note: This bonding wire is installed in addition to your normal grounding process (green wire). You need both per code.
Connect the opposite end of the ozonator ground line to the external ground line of the pump. The external ground line is located on top of the motor. The external ground line for the motor may have a protective green sleeve. Remove an inch of the green sleeve so that the copper line is exposed. The two lines must be touching in order for the system to be properly grounded.
